will speak to small groups of voters in iowa and virginia. last night, he had a bigger crowd. tara mergener is in washington with much more on this. good morning, tara. >> good morning, betty. this week democrats are getting both pep talks and scolding from president obama, who says it's time they buck up. >> hello, wisconsin! >> reporter: it felt like 2008 all over again. >> they said, no, you can't, but what did you say, wisconsin? >> yes, we can! >> reporter: with midterm elections just five weeks away president obama is on the campaign trail looking to energize democrats and sway undecided voters. at a rally at the university of wisconsin, he urged thousands of students to stay involved and inspired. the speech was beamed to 100 college campus destinationwide. >> we cannot sit this one out. we can't let this country fall backwards because the rest of us didn't care enough to fight. the stakes are too high for our country and for your future. >> reporter: with the tea party generating a big buzz this campaign season for the republicans and the political right, president obama knows it's
is reaching a less than glowing end. this week, ge is shuttering this plant in winchester, virginia, its last u.s. factory producing plain old incandescent lightbulbs. new energy standards will all but ban the bulbs over the next four years, forcing millions to switch to compact fluorescents, most of which are made overseas. seems the invention that thomas edison perfected 130 years ago is flickering and fading. >> this is edison's private experimental room at the laboratory. one of the things he was working on a lot in the late 1880s and early 1890s were ways of improving the electric lamp. >> reporter: paul israel says the great inventor would be torn about the change. >> on the one hand, he would have been disappointed. on the other hand, one of the things he was very interested in was the more efficient ways to generate electricity. so he would have seen that as the future. >> reporter: the incandescent bulb might be edison's most important innovation. notorious for getting by on a few hours' sleep, he wanted to transform the world into a 24-hour culture by lighting up the night. but the
, that is a republican's pledge to america. they rolled it out. they went to a hardware store out in sterling, virginia, what do you make of it? >> i think it is less interesting as a governing agenda as it is as kind of a rorschach test. mainstream moderate republicans and conservatives seem to bell come that. we are enthusiastic about telephone. precisely because it's not particularly bold, not particularly dangerous or controversial it really overturns the obama agenda. but tea party, the hard-core of the tea party was very critical of the pledge. for the same reasons. because it wasn't bold enough. they don't want to just overturn the obama agenda. they want to overturn broad layers of the u.s. government. i think that that presents a problem for republicans if they win the house between those that really want to take down the whole building and those that want to govern an effective wage. it's going to be a serious conflict. >> so we are getting a look at what could happen down the road. >> i think it is more of a political document than sort of a vague blueprint for governing. i mean they finesse
a number of international conferences that we found it at the university of iowa. the virginia tech research, and the second international conference on driver distraction and attention. the scientific community is really getting much more diverse in this topic, as well as repoed on these for many different conferences as well. when you start to take a look at the kinds of tools that will use in research, those are also devolving our jobs as scientists is really to paint a picture, sometimes it is clear what the picture is made up, other times it is very fuzzy. we have very tightly controlled laboratory research from scanners that can tell us exactly how the brain changes under different kinds of attention demand. we use simulators with the national advance driving simulator. we use field experiments. finally, crashed in epidemiology data to understand how these kinds of mechanisms work. along this continuant we have the basic research that has experimental control where we can ask very specific questions and get fairly unambiguous results to understand the underlying mechanisms. as
